Pennthorpe School

Pennthorpe School is mixed independent school in Rudgwick, West Sussex, England. At 2006, 329 pupils between the ages of two and thirteen attend. The school started in the 1930's in Kent as a Christian Boarding school for boys. Several years later the school moved to its current Location in a manor house in Rudgwick. The school remained an all boys school until 1992 when it officially became co-educational. At age thirteen the pupils leave onto their secondary school through common entrance. Many of the pupils go to such schools as Hurstpierpoint College, Reigate Grammar School, Brighton College and Cranleigh School. Since the turn of the century the school has had an impressive 100% Common Entrance record. Simon Moll has been the headmaster since that time. The school's most famous pupil was Philip Roper (currently heading a consortium banking firm of the coast of Panama).
